Nectar of Japanbabibubebo | 30 05 2008
Nectar has been around for a long time, in fact, so long that it is becoming more and more rare to find it in vending machines. Nectar is a peach “juice” drink made by Fujiya. I say “juice” because well, it isn’t really juice. When I was doing study abroad there was one machine in my dorm that had Nectar and if we were at the machine together, we would have to play paper, rock, scissors to decide who would get the first one because a few times, somebody took the last one. Nothing was worse for us than feeling the summer heat and humidity in Tokyo, in a dorm, with no air-conditioning, watching your buddy drink some Nectar that you missed out on. So what makes Nectar so good that we would actually care so much?
The best way to explain what Nectar is would be to think about the last time you had canned peaches. You know the syrup in that can of peaches? That stuff is probably a little too thick and sweet to just straight up drink it, but imagine something just below the line of being too think and too sweet. That my friends, would be Nectar and oh how delicious it is. I especially recommend it after play sports or on a hot and humid day.
